An assistant district attorney wants the lawyers representing a Connellsville father and son in a homicide case disqualified from the case.

Robert Leroy Daniels Jr., 43, and his son, Robert Leroy Daniels III, 19, both of Connellsville, are charged with murdering David Gida in June 2011.

Gida died of stab wounds in the neck in his Connellsville apartment. A gold necklace, a silver ring and other items were missing.

The men have different attorneys, but the attorneys work at the same Pittsburgh firm, Bickerton and Bickerton. William Bickerton represents Daniels Jr. and Lea Bickerton represents his son.

In motions filed this week, Assistant District Attorney Anthony Iannamorelli has asked for a hearing on his request to disqualify “defense counsel” because of a conflict of interest. Having attorneys from the same law firm represent clients with different interests is a conflict, he argues, because it could limit their representation of their clients.

A hearing date was not immediately set.
